Identify Which Page is this in Magento 2

As a Magento 2 developer many times you want to load the content based on the page types. Like you want to populate the static block on certain pages only or want to check current page is a home page, category page, product page & cms page in Magento 2. Therefore you first need to identify which page is this in Magento 2 using PHP code.

In this code snippet, we will create a helper file and define some functions. These functions will identify which page is this in Magento 2. After that, we will create a phtml file and see how we can call a helper function to identify page type in the phtml file.

Create Helper File

Create Data.php file under app/code/Vendor/Module/Helper directory and add below code.

<?php
namespace Vendor\Module\Helper;

class Data extends \Magento\Framework\App\Helper\AbstractHelper
{

    public function isHomePage()
    {
        if($this->_request->getFullActionName() == 'cms_index_index')
            return true;

    }

    public function isCategoryPage()
    {
        if($this->_request->getFullActionName() == 'catalog_category_view')
            return true;

    }

    public function isProductPage()
    {
        if($this->_request->getFullActionName() == 'catalog_product_view')
            return true;

    }

    public function isCartPage()
    {
        if($this->_request->getFullActionName() == 'checkout_cart_index')
            return true;

    }

    public function isCheckoutPage()
    {
        if($this->_request->getFullActionName() == 'checkout_index_index')
            return true;

    }

	public function isCmsPage()
    {
        if($this->_request->getFullActionName() == 'cms_page_view')
            return true;

    }

}

Create PHTML File

Create test.phtml file under app/code/Vendor/Module/view/frontend/templates directory and add below code.

<?php

$helper = $this->helper('Vendor\Module\Helper\Data');

if($helper->isHomePage())
{
    //your code here
}

if($helper->isCategoryPage())
{
    //your code here
}

if($helper->isProductPage())
{
    //your code here
}

if($helper->isCartPage())
{
    //your code here
}

if($helper->isCheckoutPage())
{
    //your code here
}

if($helper->isCmsPage())
{
    //your code here
}
